Earlier this week, Greencore’s latest on-site colleague shop opened at our Manton 110 distribution centre in Worksop, making it the first colleague shop in our Direct to Store network.
Our growing network of colleague shops enables Greencore colleagues to purchase good, surplus food products from across our business at heavily discounted prices. So now, in addition to sandwiches and wraps, manufactured at Manton Wood, our colleagues are able to buy ready meals, chilled soups, quiche, Yorkshire puddings, cooking sauces, dips and salads from our sites in Selby, Leeds, Kiveton, Warrington and Spalding. In addition to donating surplus sandwiches to local charities, the Manton 110 site also distributes sandwiches to other Greencore locations.
The shop name was the result of a competition amongst colleagues, with the winning name, The Greencorner Shop, being the brainchild of Transport Supervisor, Frank Humphries. Frank joined our Logistics Director Andy Gillies, who unveiled the name and cut the ribbon as part of a very well attended opening ceremony.
